What it does

We support people who are hungry and lonely by serving tasty lunches and dinners every single day in towns and cities across the country. Many of our guests struggle to afford the basics to eat and many will eat alone without company or conversation. Our growing number of incredible volunteers across the country serve over 1200 people a week using surplus food (cooked in spare kitchen space).
